I have 13inch 128gb ssd mbp 13inch, i do not want to see videos which increases game's installation size and how can i patch ? I just do not like the idea that it is wasting my ssd space.

Its impossible to cut down on the size. Starcraft II has no full motion video. All of the cut scenes are rendered on the fly as you are watching them.

did you just make that up?

Because the ending cutscenes and pretty much all the protoss cutscenes would make my machine explode if rendered on the fly.

Blizzard would never do realtime cutscenes, theyre like Square and have to spend a ton of money on cutting edge prerendered cutscenes

Just about all the simple dialog 'cutscenes' in the bar and Hyperion are rendered on the fly, but there's plenty of FMV scattered in there.

Still, I dunno how you'd cut it out. Or if you'd really want to... maybe you could just try playing it from a big USB flash drive?

I guess I was thinking that because the cut scenes quality adjust to graphics setting then they can't be pre-rendered. for proof that they adjust go to ign.com and look at the graphics video they recently did called something like how ugly can starcraft II get. also the framerate on my machine dropped several times during cut scenes and how would a fmv that is just playing back have framerate drops. I do know however that you can't cut down the size of the game becasue all of the files are mainly in a large lump file

This is a cutscene rendered in game

This is a FMV which you get in either HD or Standard definition.

I don't really know how you can confuse the two unless you haven't played the Protoss missions.

I guess that would be the problem then. I haven't quite made it to the Protoss missions yet.
